Q. IV. What Preachers have died since the last Conference ?
A. 1. In Great Britain, the seventeen following :-

(1.) THOMAS PINDER; who was born at West-Stockwith, near Gainsborough, September 22d, 1774; and was brought to the knowledge and enjoyment of God at Sheffield, where he then resided, in 1795. He was an upright, devout, and humble man, remarkable for his simplicity and godly sincerity. His preaching was sound, fervent, and practical. He was very zealous in the cause of Christ, and was instrumental in the conversion of many sinners. His state of mind during his last illness was most satisfactory. He fell asleep in Jesus, August 27th, 1835, in the sixty-first

year of his age, having faithfully laboured in the work of the ministry thirty-six years.

(2.) JAMES SYDSERFF; who was converted to God about the year 1796, and in the year 1803 entered upon the duties of our itinerant ministry. During the thirty-two years in which he was employed in this work, he was indefatigable and persevering; and his labours were owned of God in the conversion of

many

souls. In the course of his last illness he said, “ I shall soon be in glory. Of this I have every assurance that I could desire.” He died in the Lord on Sunday, September 27th, 1835, aged fifty-five years.

(3.) WILLIAM HARRISON, SEN. He was effectually turned to God in his youth. For nearly forty years he was engaged in the work of the ministry, as an Itinerant Preacher; and on becoming a Supernumerary, he determined to devote his remaining strength to the advancement of the cause of his Redeemer. vigilant, prayerful, and successful Pastor, visiting day by day, from house to house, with unwearied diligence. He died rejoicing in God his Saviour, Nov. 24th, 1835, in the sixty-fourth year of his age. Some of his last words were, “ I stand upon the Rock. The Saviour whom I have preached to others is now my support."

(4.) Thomas Rowe. He had the privilege of a religious education, and at an early period in life devoted himself to God. He was a man of deep piety, and of genuine simplicity; and the word of Christ dwelt richly in him. His views of Christian doctrine were clear and sound, and his manner of explaining and enforcing them was impressive. As a Preacher he was highly acceptable and useful; and in his walk and conversation a pattern of every good work. After having endured, with great patience and entire resignation to the divine will, a long and painful affliction, he died happy in God, Dec. 12th, 1835, aged fifty years.

(5.) John Briddon; who at an early age carnestly sought
